9781903998724: Building with Cob: A Step-by-Step Guide (Sustainable Building)

The ancient method of cob building uses a simple mixture of clay sub-soil, aggregate, straw and water to create solid structural walls built without shuttering or forms, onto a stone plinth. It is now undergoing a renaissance as an 'eco-friendly' building material because of its amazing 'green' credentials. 'Building with Cob' shows how to apply this ancient technique in a wide variety of contemporary situations, covering everything from design and siting, mixing, building walls, fireplaces, ovens and floors, lime and other natural finishes, and gaining planning permission and building regulation approval. It also explains in detail how to sensitively restore an old cob structure. This book is a step-by-step guide, lavishly illustrated with over 300 colour photos and 85 diagrams.

Book Description UIT Cambridge Ltd., 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Cob building uses a simple mixture of clay sub-soil, aggregate, straw and water to create solid structural walls built without shuttering or forms, on to a stone plinth. This ancient practice has been used throughout Britain for centuries - the fact that 45,000 of Cornwall's housing stock is cob, is a testament to the material's strength and durability. Building with Cob shows how to apply cob-building techniques in a wide variety of situations. It covers everything from design, planning and siting, to roofs, insulation and floors. Lavishly illustrated with inspirational colourphotographs, it is the first book of its kind in the UK. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1903998727
